History
Bought new in Germany by A man. He brought it to Sweden 1996 where he sold it to dealership later on in 2013.
Later on purchased by a elder women who could not drive the car during Winter(cause: no ESP) sold it to a dealership in 2013.
Bought by a man named Erki Käkkula who sold it to a unknowingly me 2014 cause: Faulty harness and leaking head(my opinion)
He claimed that it was because it was spring again and time to get backup one the bike . He bought a car every year in the fall, to sell it in the spring. Because then, the car value wouldn't drop. Yes, he had owned a lot of cars so I took his story in guarantee.

Now am I trying to renovate it.
Take care of the rust
Cange interior and customize it
Get Winter Wheels back to alu from steel rims
Get a updated engine harness
Fix the Head gasket
Go thru the whole car piece by piece. Again!

Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock:
M104 (193HP)

Picture on the way as soon as spring comes along :P

Update: It has been a couple of springs now but in some way I always seem to forget to take a picture of the motorboat lol
Interior
Center console panels in piano black (poor pictures).
I am now looking for a complete leather interior (light grey)
In the end most of the trim is supose to be piano black.

For now its a "Biltema" interior in it (http://www.biltema.se/sv/Bil---MC/Bil-tillbehor/Styling/Bilkladsel/Bilkladsel-2000028522/)/(http://images.biltema.com/PAXToImageService.svc/article/xlarge/39820)

You can also see my Dashcam (Lucas LK9750) in piture 3.

stock:
Black tetris interior
Power windows all around
Power mirrors, heated
Electric sunroof
Electric folding of rear neck rests
Heated rear window
C-lock button center console

Update: No leather here, going with original interior. I have bought new interior door trim panels but not 100% if I am going to paint them.
Exterior
Wind deflectors (Installation after Winter (not a oem part)) for all door windows and sunroof.
Tinted rear lights, I wanted to keep the original orange glass so I choose to tint them instead of buying the facelift ones.

Update: I still have doubts about the deflectors since they are glued, but rather glued then screwed in to place. I still worry if they will damage the paint.
Audio
Audio 10 + cd changer
Cd-holder center concole (fisher box)

The previous owner rip the CD-player+CD-changer+cable out, that gave me the chance to reinstall/upgrade :P

Audio10: A170 820 0386
Cd- changer: A 002 820 5989
Cabele cd changer: A202 440 6538/ from a w140 500 SEL

Update: The CD- changer didn't work, my mechanic promised me that I could buy his. Unfortunate did he loose his garage so all his car stuff is laying in unmarked boxes (had to leave in a hurry) so that is put on ice aswel.
Suspension
Stock
Wheel and Tire
